The Python Packaging Index (the software formerly known
as Cheeseshop) is now available at

The old addresses (, and will continue to work,
either as aliases or using HTTP redirections.

The software was renamed to its old name

even to people familiar with the sketch, as

If you would like to discuss PyPI and its future,
